House OKs Cursive 68-2

Rep. Linden Batemen, R-Idaho Falls, spoke passionately in support of his pro-cursive resolution, HCR 3, before the House voted 68-2 in favor of it this morning. “If we do not teach cursive, the day will come when we will not be able to read cursive handwriting … old documents, inscriptions of any kind. … That will happen. I’m seeing it happen now,” he said. The resolution calls on the State Board of Education to include cursive handwriting in the new “Common Core” standards for what children should learn in school/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.
